CPU load

The realism and expressiveness of the SWAM instrument set can be very CPU intensive. It therefore requires a modern computer with at least a 1.6 GHz Core 2 Duo CPU. Less powerful systems may also prove satisfactory, but may require larger buffer sizes, involving higher latencies.

* 32bit products have been dismissed starting from Woodwinds 2.8 and Solo Strings 2.0 (November 2017)

** Audio Units on Mojave and Catalina
If the plugins are not found by your DAW after the installation, clean the Audio Units cache and reboot the system.

To clean the Audio Units cache:
- In the Finder, choose Go > Go to Folder from the menu.
- Type ~/Library/Caches in the "Go to the folder" field.
- Press the Go button
- Remove the "com.apple.audiounits.cache" file.
- Remove the ~/Library/Caches/AudioUnitCache folder
